…And just like that, it’s done. Five years, and it’s over, it all came down to this. If Stargate: SG1 was ‘The Little Show That Could,’ an unexpectedly popular show that came out of nowhere, survived several cancellations, and had a wildly successful ten-year run, then, alas, Atlantis was ‘The Big Show That Couldn’t.’ Don’t get me wrong – I’m unquestionably a fan, and there’s a lot to like about Atlantis – but it never enjoyed the mass-media popularity nor the crossover support from viewers who don’t generally watch Science Fiction that SG1 did.
